OS is RHEL 6.2.
I appear to be having an issue with SELinux. I've disabled it in
/etc/sysconfig/selinux, however, when my host starts the command
sestatus show that I'm in permissive mode.
Searches in Stack Exchange bring me to this U&L Q&A: How to permamently disable SELinux?. That question mentions a scenario that sounds similar to mine.
Which prompted me to have the following questions:
- what does
- Is it safe to turn to this to 0?
NOTE: My original problem is related to automount/nfs.
Sometimes when a distant Filesystem is neither mounted nor unmounted, we have to restart
autofs. I don't know if this is happening under heavy traffic or if this issue is related to the
net.ipv4.tcp_syncookies problem above or not.
So I'm trying to get a better understanding of
net.ipv4.tcp_syncookies so that I can ascertain whether this is related to my
autofs problem or nott.
